"Stress and Wealth"

Many people believe that making more money creates wealth. A person can devote time to making more money, but it’s impossible to make more time.

I think of wealth as the creation of discretionary time. We have 24 hours in the day, and that’s it. Money is just a means to an end. Riches are not wealth. A lifestyle is not a bank account. Watch this stress reducing tip!

4. Discipline Without Stress Tip

I recently received the following inquiry:

"What happens when you elicit a consequence and the child says their solution is just that they won't do it again?"

Ask the student to describe the procedure he will use. Keep on asking "What else?" "What else?" "What else?" until the student comes up with a procedure on which you both can agree. The point to remember is to always put the responsibility on the youngster.

The teacher also wrote...

"Students don't come when the teacher blows the recess whistle."

Then the procedure needs to be practiced again—unless the student is intentionally choosing an unacceptable level of Social Development.

If this is the situation, my approach would be to put him in charge of the activity. That is, let him know that you need his help. Ask him if he would be willing to take a leadership role to solve the problem. When the whistle blows, all he would have to do is start rounding everyone up. Ask him if he can handle this. This would empower him in a positive way, solve the problem and improve your relationship with him.

5. Living Without Stress Tip

— The Following Excerpt is from Chapter 1 of
Live Without Stress: How to Enjoy the Journey

Assumptions are beliefs taken for granted. They are so natural and involuntary they usually do not enter our consciousness. We assume that when we get out of bed, the floor will be beneath us and that when we mail a letter the intended recipient will receive it.

However, there are also assumptions we make that may not be valid. For example, we may assume that someone is angry with us by the manner in which that person speaks to us. Yet it could be that the person is feeling frustrated by an event entirely unconnected to us and is simply “taking it out” on the first person encountered—in this case, you.

You have your yearly routine health exam with the assumption that all tests ordered are routine and the results will be favorable; or you can assume that, since the doctor is ordering tests, there will be something wrong. The significant point to remember is that once we understand that we are making an assumption, we can consciously decide if it serves us well. This understanding gives us more control over our lives and, therefore, can reduce our stress.

6. Discipline Online

Discipline Online reduces the "sink or swim" approach to teaching. Education is still the only profession that does NOT teach the most essential skill for success, namely, walking into a classroom for the first time as a new teacher and having a system to handle every behavior or discipline problem. Learn how at an incredibly low investment at Discipline online.
